Breivik sees opportunities

Anders Behring Breivik’s defence counsel says his client now partly welcomes psychiatrists’ evaluation.



Court-appointed experts Torgeir Husby and Synne Sørheim declared Breivik “criminally insane”, Tuesday, recommending he be put into enforced psychiatric care.

Geir Lippestad, representing the mass murderer said to TV2, “He [my client] has rationalised it for himself and said it provides more opportunities. Therefore, he is no longer disappointed or upset about the report per se.” Breivik was originally “offended.”

The 243-page report was compiled based on 13 interviews with Breivik stretching over 36 hours, 130 hours of police interrogations, as well as the psychiatrists’ own observations. It is reportedly the longest in Norwegian legal history.

“He has developed paranoid schizophrenia over a longer period, which has changed Breivik into the person he is today,” the document reads.

Should Oslo District Court decide he should be committed at next year’s trial, it is believed the terrorist will most likely be transferred to Dikemark specialist psychiatric hospital in Asker.

Dikemark is one of the three psychiatric hospitals in Norway with the highest level of security.
